Wendy & Martin's house
Wendy & Martin graciously invited us to their home for a celebratory birthday dinner in honor of Chi. (Happy birthday Chi!)
We got to hang with cutie Eloise!
Linda brought desserts from Jin Patisserie where she works on the weekends. Yummers:
Playing a major part of the evening was their beautiful home! They hired an architect who designed an amazing modern remodel for the back part of the house, including back yard. The entire back wall of their kitchen area is composed of sliding glass doors that open up to the DG backyard with wispy native grass plantings, a small triangle of grass that echos the shape of the lot, a pretty desert tree and prominently, Martin's treasure box.
Martin's treasure box is an adaptive reuse of a former shipping container. You can see it behind Jenny & Chi in one of the above dinner pics. Martin points out where he will be installing additional shelving inside. It's pretty damned cool.
